    If Dallas loses tonight and falls to 8-8, does that impact our draft slot or doesn't it matter? I'm leaving Pittsburgh now and will be listening to SNF during the ride home and want to know if I should be doing the unthinkable and rooting for Dallas (I sure hope not).

    Fix the OL with an OG or OT and they will actually be on the field as a rookie learning and contributing. Until we fix the OL we will not be the type of offense we are capable of being.
    Depends who returns and how quickly the player selected develops. Hampton started as a rookie.

    I just saw an article showing us picking 14th???

    In the end, I could be wrong- not the first time, but after watching today's game and hearing a few things in the local media, they MAY just bring back Wallace (franchise him) and maybe even Hampton- at a reduced rate. Hampton had a decent game and season for the most part, and he really doesn't want to leave Pittsburgh. He's definitely sounding like he wants to keep playing- wherever. I really think we need a big time RB, since our last 1st rd RB never panned out. However, there aren't any right now worthy of a 1st round pick. I say a playmaker that can get to the QB- LB. Or a Safety...? I'm leaning LB since Harrison may not be back based on his salary hit. Gonna need a stud at OLB... How aobut the dude from LSU?

    To Dee Dub and others. When has the Steelers drafted with an eye to having a rookie start for a fact? Pouncy was going to have a chance at guard but was good enough to not start at center. I think that was just a bonus. They draft for the future or so it seems to me. Do they plan or hope the rookies can help out, I hope so. I don't want to miss out on a great player like Troy P just because he is not ready to start as a rookie.

    He's probably not in the range of where the Steelers will be drafting. I've seen him top 10 and as high as 5th overall.

    There are players in this draft who could start immediately in the NFL. It is all based on whether or not the Steelers want that. Remember Ben Roethlisberger was going to sit his entire year behind Tommy Maddox? It is an organizational philosophy. If the Steelers really want an immediate starter then they will have to change that philosophy.
